Experience unmatched performance and affordability with the Encounter® Fly Rod Outfit.
Instead of the term “entry level,” we prefer to describe our new Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness.” Built for the hardcore angler, yet priced with frugality in mind, the Encounter rod series combines state-of-the-art rod design with a smooth, crisp performance—packaged with a large arbor Encounter reel (size II), weight-forward floating 6-wt. line, backing, leader, and rod/reel case. The Encounter rod outfit is easily the best value-priced outfit of its kind. The 9' 6-weight offers extra distance and power for targeting larger trout and can handle heavier flies and streamers.
